Lincoln MKX Recalls
The passenger frontal air bag assembly is deployed by an inflator which contains propellant that makes the air bag deploy. This propellant may degrade over time, especially when exposed to humidity and temperature cycling. As a result, the inflator may rupture on deployment, which can send metal shrapnel through the air bag, striking vehicle occupants. This could result in serious injury or death.
The seat back trim cover for the second row center seating position restricts the child seat anchors. This prevents proper attachment of a child safety seat, and could result in occupant injury.
A seam of the fuel tank may develop a fuel leak, due to excessive corrosion from exposure to road salt. This could cause a fire hazard, as well as a fuel odor.
The steering gear motor mounting bolts may corrode and fail, causing power steering assist on the vehicle to be lost. This would cause extra effort steering the vehicle, and could result in loss of vehicle control.
A fuel leak may develop due to corrosion on the tank.
Engine power to the drive wheels may be unexpectedly lost, increasing the risk of a vehicle crash. Additionally, this failure may cause the vehicle to roll away if the parking brake is not applied despite the transmission being placed in 'Park'.
There's a computer called the BCM (body control module) that helps to manage all of the other computers and electronics in your vehicle. Ford has found that some of these BCMs can overheat and potentially cause a fire.
71 vehicles are being recalled because the locking function of the liftgate does not work as designed.
An area of the fuel tank that is welded may develop a leak. Leaking fuel causes odor and a fire hazard.
